Revised FCC Form Will Ask Applicants “the Felony Question”

A revised FCC Form 605 — Quick-Form Application for Authorization in the Ship, Aircraft, Amateur, Restricted and Commercial Operator, and General Mobile Radio Services — going into effect in September will ask all applicants to indicate if they have been convicted of or pled guilty to a felony. The FCC used to ask “the felony question” on the old Form 610 and still does on other applications. It’s now expanding it to Form 605, apparently for uniformity.
